We investigated different ways to join materials.
First we used glue but this was not strong enough to join the material.
Then we tried stapling along the edges. This worked much better and held our material together.
Finally we had a go at sewing. This was a good way of joining as well but we found it really tricky so it took a long time.
We decided that we would use staples to join our material to make our puppets.
We looked at lots of different puppets and then designed our own.
Finally, we evaluated our puppets and we decided that joining them using staples was very tricky for our hands and we needed a lot of help. We talked about how else we could join the material and thought that we could use textile glue because it is stronger than the glue that we had tried origionally.
We have absolutley LOVED this DT project and have continued to develop our skills further by making puppets in the creative area.
